The 2016 version of Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the products included in the new Microsoft Office 2016, now referred to as 'Office 16'. The Office was designed as an improvement to the earlier Office 2013 and Office for Mac 2011 versions. The initial release came in July of 2015 in the OS X software for Office 365 users, with the licensed version following in September of 2015. Microsoft PowerPoint has received rave reviews for its improvements. The improvements include more modern themes, introduced in greater quantity for a more enhanced user experience. The new version also boasts new animation panes for editing or changing effects as desired. Earlier versions of the PowerPoint software had animation ribbons placed at inconvenient areas or in the Toolbox. The more modern panes are now located in the open; making the editing process easier for users.
